Oh wow oh wow oh wow. I’ve been a fan of Annalise since…

Oh wow oh wow oh wow. I’ve been a fan of Annalise since her incredible (ultimately, kind of heart-breaking) performance at the London Olympics in 2012, and then through her silver medal in Rio. She’s awesome! I’m so excited to get the chance to see her race the Volvo.

I now have three favorite teams. 😀 (Eh, technically I was already a fan of Dee and TTToP. But now they’re right up at the top of the list with MAPFRE and Dongfeng.)

The medal race for the women’s Laser Radial class is under way…

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

The medal race for the women’s Laser Radial class is under way in Rio. Annalise Murphy of Ireland is in third place on points, with a good chance for a bronze medal, a small but decent chance for silver, and remote chance for gold. People with access to RTE can watch the race live; for the rest of us brother Finn is doing updates on her twitter account, @annalise_murphy.

I’ll update this post for Sally and anyone else who cares.

Go Annalise! :-)

will you keep us posted?

Winds were too light to get a race off today. They’re going to try again tomorrow. If there isn’t enough wind tomorrow they’ll just award medals based on the current standings, which would give Annalise the bronze.

Annalise Murphy told nobody but she came to Rio for this Olympic medal

Annalise Murphy told nobody but she came to Rio for this Olympic medal:

Like a lot of people I got very caught up in the drama of Annalise Murphy’s performance at the London Olympics. The 22-year-old Irish sailor dominated in the early going, winning four races outright against the world’s best. She was in the lead going into the medal race, only to fall to fourth overall and miss winning a medal. Over the last four years she’s dedicated herself to doing better in Rio, and today is the day.

Annalise will secure a bronze unless she finishes five places (or more) behind the Belgian boat in the medal race. To get a silver, she has to finish ahead of Denmark. For the gold – a much tougher ask – she not only has to beat Denmark, but has to be five places ahead of the Netherlands too.

Winds are light on the racecourse; there may be a postponement before the start. You can follow the action via her brother Finn’s updates on her twitter account, @Annalise_Murphy. Go Annalise! :-)
